Charles was a fantastic pet sitter. Our dogs loved him! He kept us updated with notes and pictures the entire time. Definitely recommend using him!

Charles had a great overnight stay with our 13 week old puppy. He arrived on time, fed the dog, took him for many walks, and sent us updates throughout the entire process. Would definitely recommend him!

Charles has been great with my dog Kobe. Kobe has plenty of challenges with his social characteristics and Charles has easily gotten Kobe to warm up to him and be very comfortable. I receive regular updates and pictures while I'm gone and I have virtually no concerns when leaving Kobe for extended periods w/ Charles.

Will send you many pics of YOUR dog

I am a self-employed writer with ample time to spend with your best friend(s) and will provide an energy-level to match any breed/mix!

I've raised an Australian Shepherd mix (Sylvie) and Lab/Pit (Jake) from just over a month old (now going on 4 and 7 years), attended puppy-dog training classes, and certified Jake as a therapy dog (Therapy Dogs International) for nursing homes - he intensely watches the tennis balls on walkers/canes ...

What Charles would like to know about your dog

I like to set up a pre-walk/stay visit because I understand that not all dogs are compatible with all people and I want the best for your furry friends I've had experience with puppy training, bad behaviors, and cleaning up accidents; I ask my clients to be upfront with me about behaviors so that there are no surprises and I can get to know your dog better!

Can provide daily exercise

When Charles watches your pet

I'll map a route in your own neighborhood and let your friend check up on their neighborhood friends. Or, if your dog is a fan of the beach/parks I’m more than happy to drive to new locations.

I have taught my Aussie numerous tricks, enjoy playing/setting up puzzles, and will go on more extensive 'adventures' once all parties are comfortable with each other (such as hiking if your dog is energetic).
